    Achenseebahn is just 8km from Kramsach

    by globetrott Updated Feb 8, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Achenseebahn is quite a unique kind of old steamtrain and you will find it in a distance of just 8km from Kramsach, in the town of Jenbach ! Achensee is a lake in a hight of 900 meters above sealevel and that is about 400 meters above the valley of the Inn, where this cog railway starts in Jenbach. Jenbach is ca. 35km east of Innsbruck - go there by train or by car !The distance from Jenbach to Achensee is only 6760 meters, so that is not even 7km and in some places the traintrack is really steep. The trainline was opened in 1889 and they are still using the same steamtrains and wagons of that time and that makes the Achenseebahn the oldest cogwheel locomotive still operating worldwide

    ---------------------------------------------------
    Achenseebahn is operated only in summertime !
    In 2015 that was between May1st and November 2nd, 2015
    and for other years, take a look at their webpage !
    They take your bicycle as well, BUT you have to reserve a place for it !
    Oneway the cost is 23,- Euros return is 29,50 Euros
    all persons above 60years pay 25,- Euros for the returnticket

    This is a private trainline, so ALL Interrail- Eurail- and similar prepaid
    traintickets are NOT valid there !!!

    by globetrott Updated Feb 8, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Museumsfriedhof / cemetery-museum in Kramsach is a museum of funny tombstone-inscriptions and you will find it about halfway between Innsbruck and Kufstein, take the Highway-exit "Kramsach"
    The Museum-Friedhof of Kramsach is a small openair-museum that you will find inside of the garden behind of a company that obviously is producing modern tombstones and started collecting old and funny inscriptions that they found in various cemeteries of the area of Bavaria and Tyrol. They have a souvenirshop as well. Go inside, there is no entrancefee for the museum and it is a lot of fun to read these inscriptions, BUT You actually have to understand german in order to really enjoy this.

    Zu schwer musste er buessen hier
    er starb an selbstgebrautem Bier.

    Falkner - Schnaitterhof from Hatting

    by globetrott Written Feb 8, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Falkner - Schnaitterhof was originally built in 1627 in Hatting, a small village close to Innsbruck. Significant for this building is the fact that not only the basement of the house was built by stone, but also the upper floor and that there are some fancy decorations in the facade and a special roof that was added in 1736, see it in my last picture !

    Hochmuthmuehle of 1821

    by globetrott Updated Feb 1, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an interesting detail of the Museum of old Farmsteads: Hochmuthmuehle, a mill dating back to 1821, with a giant construction of an artificial waterway that takes the water in a wooden "bridge" over several hundreds of meters before it will finally move the large wheel of the watermill. This same artificial waterway is used also by a small smithy in a short distance up the valley.

    Tratzberg castle is just 12km from Kramsach

    by globetrott Updated Jan 23, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The village of Stans and the scenic castle Tratzberg is juat about 12km from Kramsach and it might be a perfect combination to do both villages & its attractions in the same day !
    Burg Tratzberg in Stans is one of the few castles you will see when driving on the highway from Innsbruck towards Kufstein. The castle has wonderful frescoes in the innercourt and a really interesting interior with unique furniture of the 15th and 16th century.Unfortunately its not allowed to take any photos inside the rooms, but at least it was allowed to take pics in the innercourt. Almost every hour there is a guided tour and thats also the only way to see this castle's interior. There is a large carpark from where you can eighter walk abourt half an hour to the castle or you take the "road-train" to the castle, the price was just 2 euros p.p. return and it really saves you a lot of time and sweat.

    Museum alter Bauernhoefe

    by globetrott Updated Jan 13, 2015

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Museum alter Bauernhoefe in Kramsach / Tirol is the german name of this interesting museum-village of old, tyrolean farmhouses that were taken from all parts of Tirol, including South-Tirol (that is a part of Italy nowadays). These houses were rebuilt again in groups like small villages and you can walk through and take a look inside the houses that are fully functional with all the furniture and machineries. There are partly farm-animals as well, so this museum is also a great place to visit for children !
    In my last picture : Hochmuthmuehle, a mill dating back to 1821, with a giant construction of an artificial waterway that takes the water in a wooden "bridge" over several hundreds of meters before it will finally move the large wheel of the watermill. This same artificial waterway is used also by a small smithy in a short distance up the valley.

    Kramsacher Seengebiet (lakes of Kramsach)

    by himalia11 Updated Jul 28, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are several lakes next to Krambach: Frauensee, Buchsee, Krummsee, Reintalersee (all in the valley like Kramsach) and the Berglsteinersee (in the mountains). The Reintaler See is the largest of these lakes, with a maximum depth of 10m. There’s a walking trail around this lake, mostly pretty small and very nice. There only could be a few more signs! We obviously took the wrong path at one place (we should have looked at our hiking map!) and reached the lakes Buchsee & Krummsee from where the went back to the Reintaler See. It still was a short walk of around one hour.

    You also can swim in the Reintaler See. There's no separated fenced area for this, but you need to pay if you want to sunbath or swim. Best is to do this at the ticket machines nearby as you’ll have to pay 0,50€ more for each ticket if you pay it at the supervisory staff. A day ticket is 3,50 € for adults (2,50€ after 14:00) and 2 € for children (1€ after 13:00). It’s free with the Alpbachtal Seenland Card (see my tip on the Alpbach travelpage).

    There are some car parks next to the lakes, usually charges apply from 8:00 to 20:00 (it was 4 € for a whole day and 2 € for 5 hour). There’s a ticket machine at the car park, the same where you also get the “swimming tickets”.

    Museumsfriedhof/ cemetery museum

    by himalia11 Written Jul 28, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cemetery museum in Kramsach is a rather bizarre museum: it’s a collection of funny tombstone inscription. On the first view it looks like you are on a real cemetery – and then you wonder why there are so much people walking around and laughing! The inscription are in German, and you are not allowed to take photos, but the entrance is free. There also is a souvenir shop nearby.
    It’s hard to translate the inscriptions as they usually rhyme and sometimes are related to sayings, but there was something like „Here rests my doctor – an all he was healing rest nearby”, “Here rests the honourable virgin and her only son>, or “In this grave rests , his wife was buried later next to him. Will he now have eternal peace?”.

    Museum of Tyrolean Farmsteads -- Fun!

    by Beausoleil Updated Mar 15, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had a great day at Kramsach in the Museum of Tyrolean Farmsteads. It is an ecomuseum with historic farm buildings from all over Austria. There are costumed docents demonstrating crafts and lots of animals wandering loose that you can pet. Children would love it (and so did we).

    There is a nice restaurant and the views throughout the outdoor museum are marvelous.

    The whole things is somewhat like Ballenberg in Switzerland, Upper Canada Village in Canada or Colonial Williamsburg in the USA. It's history but it's also lots of fun.

    The web site below is only in German. Right click and scroll down to "translate this page" and you may get a reasonable translation . . . or find a German-speaking friend.

    their are five lakes in the area. The biggest is the Reintalersee, then the Krummsee, the smaller Buchsee, de Frauensee and the higher Above Mosen, the Berglsteinersee.
    You have to buy a ticket (family 8 euro) if you want to swim in a lake.
    The water is very clean, but cold. The view is beautiful!
